DEMS! City Council raises property taxes, and wonders why rents are increasing

Our on-going alerts, DEMS! (Distinctly Embarrassing Moments for Seattle!), highlight the many ways one-party Democrat rule in Seattle has hurt the reputation of the city and our state. Read on!

In another display of Seattle Democrats’ complete lack of common sense and basic economics, the Seattle City Council voted yesterday to set up a “Renters’ Commission,” whose purpose is to stop rapidly rising rents in the city.

But setting up this commission won’t help a bit.  The real problem lies with the Mayor and the City Council.

Why are rents high?  Because Mayor Murray and the City Council have repeatedly pushed for higher property taxes, costly regulations on landlords, and restrictions on new housing construction.  The costs of all these are then passed on to renters in the form of higher rents!

How typical of Seattle politicians to create a huge problem through taxes, regulations and restrictions and then create a commission to solve the problem with more of the same.  How embarrassing!

Hypocritical liberals ignore environmental disaster….

Seattle environmentalists are ignoring an eco-catastrophe of raw human sewage.
 
Every day since February 9, when a power outage caused pumps to fail at Seattle’s government-run West Point Treatment Plant, tons of solid waste — raw sewage-fecal matter — has been pouring into Puget Sound.

The response from Seattle Democrats and environmentalists?

Nothing.  “Silence reigns as sewage spews into Puget Sound” reads a headline on the Seattle Times website.

Why the silence?  The radical environmentalists’ real target is economic growth and  private industry. So, when a government facility run by left-wing Democrats causes an ecological disaster, they don’t even care.

How hypocritical!  How harmful to Puget Sound and its delicate eco-systems!  How embarrassing for Seattle!

Do you agree with Bill O’Reilly about Jay Inslee?

Last night on Fox News, commentator Bill O’Reilly had some choice words for our state’s Governor regarding detention of illegal aliens.

O’Reilly said “the Governor is a dunderhead and I’m going to prove that to you,” blasting Inslee as “this idiot Governor of Washington state.”

We’re glad to know that the national media is catching on to our Governor who cannot govern because he’s too busy grandstanding on issues to please his far left wing base.

Seattle voters shocked over tax hike after voting for higher taxes!

“The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money” said Margaret Thatcher.  If only she could comment on what is happening in Seattle as the costs of ST3 are coming crashing down on car owners and property owners who thought someone else was going to pay the $53 Billion!

Yes, Seattle voters are getting the message that you can win an election, but lose big when you close your eyes and vote for every well-funded initiative on the ballot.  They are now up in arms about increases of 300% for car tabs (based on MSRP car values).  Seattle voters are shocked to see that their property taxes (which will also show up as rent increases for apartment dwellers) have taken a huge jump.

It’s gotten so bad that King County is using taxpayer money to take out ads on Pandora and other radio outlets reminding people that their taxes are going up because they voted for them to do exactly that!  How embarrassing!

Yes, Seattle, when you keep voting for tax increases, eventually, the tax man cometh!  

 

Will Democrats impose an income tax on Seattle?

Will the Democrats on Seattle’s City Council join Socialist City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant to impose an income tax on the citizens of Seattle?

Sawant is working with a leftist protest group called TrumpProofSeattle, whose goal is to use new taxes to maintain Seattle’s status as a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.

“Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding to sanctuary cities,” TrumpProofSeattle says on their website. “This could raise $100 million/year in Seattle, set an example for other cities, and forge a path to tax justice in Washington State!”

Tax justice?  What’s just about blatantly breaking federal laws?  What’s just about imposing an income tax that 2/3rds of citizens oppose?

Despite the many times voters have said NO to an income tax, Seattle’s Democrats are among the only supporters of the tax.  They will be strongly inclined to go along with their Socialist colleague.  How embarrassing for Seattle!

Inspiring!

President Trump’s speech to Congress last night was inspirational, patriotic, and realistic.  According to the CNN poll, 78% gave it a positive rating.

(In case you missed the President’s speech, CLICK HERE to watch the video.)

The President said, “The time for small thinking is over, the time for trivial fights is behind us” as he looked directly at the Democrats who have slowed his cabinet appointments and vow to block his agenda.  The dour Democrats who even refused to applaud the wife of a fallen Navy Seal showed they are out of  touch with the America people!

The Democrats are determined to obstruct the President’s patriotic agenda, and they desperately want him to fail.  Your Washington State Republican Party is working hard every day for you.  Help us defend the President, and respect the will of the people.  Would you please donate $25, $50, $100 or more?
